Welcome back to Read Not Guess. Today we’re going to work on the letter “Y” when it makes a long “i” sound, like at the end of the words “try” and “butterfly.”
Both parent and child will need to be able to see the screen.
Ok, let’s get started.
Explain to your child that the letter “y” sometimes makes a long “i” sound when it comes at the end of short words.
Ask your child to say the correct sounds as they point to the letters:
See if your child can read this:
Can I fly? No, not yet. But I can try. I will try it today.
Now? Yes. Let’s do it. I will show you how.
Okay. Lift off. I did it.
My, my, it was fun.
If they read it smoothly, great! If they stumble, have them sound it out another time or two to get it right.
That’s it for today. We’ll see you next time.
